SESSION TITLE: Sepsis I

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Recent research has revealed that early lactate clearance is associated with a reduction in inflammatory markers and improved clinical outcomes in septic shock. Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a well-established complication of septic shock, yet little is known about the relationship between ARDS and lactate clearance. The aim here was to evaluate whether improved lactate clearance is associated with improved outcomes in patients with septic shock complicated by ARDS.
